Nā Loea: The Masters II
About This Episode
Fans of Nā Loea: The Masters (featured in Pacific Heartbeat Season 3) will enjoy this second installment of stories that beautifully depict the lives of those who are considered masters in Hawaiian culture.
Mac Poepoe is a Native Hawaiian fisherman and a community leader on Molokai who has dedicated his life ensuring that the ocean, or “icebox,” will be well-stocked for generations to come. Herbert Hoe recognized how the widespread health afflictions of the Native Hawaiian people impaired their ability to care for themselves, and created his Ai Pono diet program utilizing the traditional foods of ancient Hawaiians.
